Disney's 'Gigantic' Pulled from Schedule Due to Creative Issues

Disney is no longer moving forward with the upcoming movie Gigantic, based on the story of the classic Jack and the Beanstalk fairy tale.

The project was being developed by the creative minds behind Frozen, Inside Out, and Tangled, but it seems some creative issues have stalled the film.

“It’s impossible to know when we begin a project how the creative process will unfold, and sometimes, no matter how much we love an idea or how much heart goes into it, we find that it just isn’t working,” Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios president Ed Catmull said in a statement to THR. “With Gigantic, we’ve come to that point, and although it’s a difficult decision, we are ending active development for now. We are focusing our energies on another project that has been in the works, which we’ll be sharing more about soon, now set for Thanksgiving 2020.”

It is not yet known what the project being released in 2020 will be.

Disney Pledges One Million Dollars to Red Cross for Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts

Robert A. Iger, chairman and chief executive officer of The Walt Disney Company, just announced that the company will be donating one million dollars to the American Red Cross to aid in the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

In addition, local ABC-owned TV affiliate KTRK in Houston has also pledged to help in the efforts. On Thursday (August 31), the Disney and ABC Television Group will host a Day of Giving to donate to the American Red Cross.

“Our hearts go out to everyone in the devastating path of this historic storm,” Robert said. “It’s hard to fully appreciate the impact, in part because it isn’t over yet. But we know thousands of people have lost everything and now face the daunting challenge of putting their lives and communities back together, and we’re using our unique resources and reach to help those in need.”

Disney will also be matching donations for their employees to the Red Cross or other qualified charities going towards to relief efforts.

Disney to Start New Streaming Service, Netflix to Lose Content

Disney has some cool news, which will also be a bummer to Netflix subscribers.

The company will be launching its own Disney-branded streaming service in 2019, but all of the company’s content will eventually be pulled from Netflix.

The new platform will be the exclusive subscription-on-demand home for Disney’s theatrical slate starting with movies released in 2019, including Toy Story 4, Frozen 2, and the live-action The Lion King.

Disney-produced shows on Netflix like the Marvel franchises will continue to live on Netflix in the future. The company will be spending a “significant” amount to invest in exclusive content for the new streaming service.

Stock in Netflix dropped more than five percent after Disney announced the news.

'Lion King' Live-Action Film's Opening Scene Shown at D23!

Jon Favreau is hard at work directing the upcoming live-action remake of Disney’s The Lion King and he unveiled the first footage from the film at the D23 Expo!

The remake will feature Donald Glover as Simba, James Earl Jones reprising his role as Mufasa, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa, Billy Eichner as Timon, and John Oliver as Zazu.

Reports from D23 on Saturday (July 15) said that the action in the “Circle of Life” opening scene mirrored what took place in the animated film’s opening. Animals such as zebras, elephants, and rhinos were seen rushing to Pride Rock, where Rafiki was seen with Nala, Mufasa, and Simba. The sequence ended with Rafiki holding up baby Simba and the title card for The Lion King appearing.

“We know how important this is. People want to understand what our approach is, what we’re doing, and as soon as I found out we were going to be doing this film, my first question was, when’s D23?” Jon told the crowd while introducing the footage.

“I visit a lot of sets… this is the first time, I thought to myself, when I went to visit Jon making the film, I had a hard time understanding how you do this,” Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn said (via EW). “And yet, they do. And I do know that Jon and his team will create something that is completely respectful and faithful to The Lion King you already know and love, just as he did with The Jungle Book.”

Tim Burton Begins Production on 'Dumbo,' Debuts Set Photo

Production has begun on Tim Burton‘s upcoming live-action reimagining of the Disney classic Dumbo and the studio just shared a photo of the director on set!

Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, and Eva Green have been confirmed to star in the film alongside newcomers Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins in their first film roles.

Disney’s new live-action feature film Dumbo introduces Holt Farrier (Farrell), a former circus star who finds his life turned upside down when he returns from the war. Circus owner Max Medici (DeVito) enlists Holt to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when Holt’s children (Parker and Hobbins) discover that Dumbo can fly, persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Keaton) and an aerial artist named Colette Marchant (Green) swoop in to make the peculiar pachyderm a star.

Dumbo has a release date set for March 29, 2019.
